Cute art but have to wait for more idea of the story before there's much else to say. :)

Not much of a story here just a heartwarming encounter between a man and a woman and chats leading to love.

With such beautiful character art and backgrounds, you should probably make a story to match, no? :D

It does but there's not a grand adventure that takes place or anything like that just a very much laid back character driven story.

Crap, you found my true weakness. WRITER CHARACTERS. I'll read or watch or play anything with one in it for some reason.

But the fact that the art in this looks fantastic and the setting sounds interesting has me more interested. Even if it doesn't have much of a story it looks like it's going to be a sweet one.

That art is lovely, and I admire that while the sprites and BGs are by different people, they both have that same buoyant, warmly-lit feel to them. They certainly set the tone for a cute story, and I'm looking forward to finding out more about them in-game!

The game is not dead. I hit a small speed bump some time ago. With my coder leaving the project i took up coding. I had messed up a few lines but i fixed all the problems. The game is near completion but i have to add in all the voice files. I'd like to apologize to everyone waiting on this project. It wasn't my intention to take so long to finish it. Please continue to wait, just a little bit longer. Screenshot: http://postimg.org/image/bx0tcgh2l/
